Oil Paintings

My oil paintings document my subconscious impulses through instinctual, energetic forms: some figures, some animals, creating marks through vivid paint application.  It is in the process itself; the physical movements and spontaneity required in painting that bring a vision and emotional experience to life.  I am interested in creating marks that guide me on an introspective journey so that the work is suspended between a tangible reality and a discovery of inner worlds.  It’s a tension that fascinates and compels me to jump right in and paint.  The wildness of a landscape provides a structure to express a personal language that has evolved over time.  My techniques vary;
brushes, fingers, smearing, pouring, splashing, impasto and paint thrown from the air.  What emerges is an organic process of which ideas evolve and manifest themselves into material form.
